She with skin the color of love
Her the one who’s been chosen by the sun
Lips of plum
With a complexion that tells a story of where we all came from
Woman of fire
Because She can take and create the heat
Thankful to a lady that wouldn’t give up her seat
Yes, Rosa Parks to spark up the convo
And Audre Lorde knew like those before her
“your silence won’t protect you”
let this ignite your soul
Ida B Wells said “the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon it”
Live in your roots
Galvanize them so no one can claim they are colorblind anymore
you see me?
This is the color of love
The color of strength
The color of brave
Our shades differ
But we are one
And the sun knows it
so our skin glows with it.
